Think Pink | Outfit

Hello world! If you're a girly girl like me, pink is sure to be your absolute favourite colour (it is definitely for me)! But for some reason, it's a colour I don't wear all too often. Pink is definitely better suited for young children, but once you've hit puberty, it is just not acceptable to be dressed from head to toe in pink!

Here I am wearing my newest favoritest purchase from H&M which is this gorgeous pink checkered crop top. Unfortunately for some reason, I cant find this top on the H&M website, so maybe it is an in store product only? But anyway, this amazing item was only £9.99 and I got it as a celebration present for finishing my exams last week.

My jacket, trousers and bag are all from Primark (one of my favourite places to shop). My black disco pants are an absolute staple in my wardrobe as it can go with so many things. You can make them look casual or formal depending on how you style them. I love high waisted trousers as they really help shape your body (especially if you are not that curvy). Here are some similar looking disco leggings from ASOS which are only £16 (a bargain!). And if you want a jacket similar to mine, you can find one here from ASOS which is currently on sale for £30!

Finally my shoes are from New Look and are my new go to's in my closet. In every picture taken, they were really washed out and appear almost white. They have a tie die affect on them, and they are a gorgeous pink colour. You can find them here for £11.99. 

I hope you have enjoyed this post, and let me know if you wear a lot of pink, or if you think pink is for little kids only.

Crop Top | Wishlist #3

Happy Wednesday lovelies! Today I am here with another wishlist of perhaps one of my most favourite clothing items at the moment, crop tops. When crop tops came back into fashion many years ago, I was horrified with the amount of stomach was showing. But as of recently, I have discovered the wonders of high waisted trousers, and have been converted to a crop top lover.

1. White Embellished Cami Top for £35 from Miss Selfridge:
I love this crop top because it would be absolutely be perfect for summer by pairing it up with some high waisted denim shorts. I think the white would especially complement a tanned skin tone. It would also look super cute with a floral skirt or shorts.

2. Crop Cami in Grey from Topshop for £6:
I actually own this crop top and I would just like to say that it is super flattering. It is tight in the boob area and goes out ever so slightly around the waist. It is so plain and simple that it can work with absolutely anything. I like to style it with some floral shorts that I got from Urban Outfitters or with some light blue high waisted jeans.

3. Pink Gingham Check Crop Top from New Look for £9.99:
I have a top very similar to this, and I love the pink colour in this. Pink is one of my favourite colours but it is very hard to style it so that you don't look like a toddler. This top is perfect as it isn't too overpowering and is super cute. There is actually a matching skirt for this top, so it is perfect for a coordinate outfit.

4. Romina White Lace Crop Top for £9.99 from MissGuided:
I love the lace look, especially for summer. It is so light looking and very girly. I feel it would go very well with absolutely anything. This would go perfectly with perhaps a maxi skirt or high waisted denim shorts, and if you wanted a more formal look, you could wear a pastel coloured skort with heals, or perhaps black skinny jeans with booties. You could definitely transition this top for day to night.

5. Folk Print Crop Top for £6.50 from Forever21:
I love this very casual top. I especially love this high necked crop top style as it very 90's. This is perfect to wear with very neutral and plain skirts, shorts, jeans etc. as it has a very prominent pattern.

6. Soft Floral Crop Top for £8.75 from Forever21:
This is something that I perhaps wouldn't always go for, but I love the baby blue colour in the flowers and the white, as it is very summery. I think this would look amazing over a bikini, paired with high waisted denim shorts.

7. Strappy Seam Bralet in Pink for £8 from Topshop:
Here is another pink item, which is perfect for many outfits. It is super plain, hence can go with so many outfits. This would work well with monochrome patterned skirts and shorts as it will add a pop of colour to the outfit. It is also super flattering as it tight.

8. Graciela Dogtooth Spaghetti Strap Crop Top in Monochrome for £9.99 from Missguided:
As you can see, I have been loving the checked pattern recently. I love this top as it could be style in so many ways. You could definitely wear this in a more formal way, by pairing it with a black tight skirt with heals, or make it super casual with some denim jeans.

9. Jasena Blue Cami Crop Top with Crochet Detail for £14.99 from Missguided:
This is a super cute top and I love the detailing on the bottom as it really adds character to the top. It is a very unique colour but as there is no pattern, it can be worn with a lot of things.

I hope you have enjoyed this post, and I have given you some style ideas for when you next wear a crop top, or if you are looking for a new crop top. Let me know which one you like best!

May | Favourites

Hello everyone! I hope you aren't having a terrible Monday, and getting out of bed wasn't too hard this morning. Today I am going to share with you my May favourites, and this is my first ever favourites post so lets hope it isn't a complete flop (because I seem to always stick with the products I know).

So to start off, I would just like to acknowledge that I have hit pan with my Collection Blush in the shade Trouble. I absolutely love this blush and it is so natural and easy to wear. You don't need to worry about whether you've got too much product on the brush, because it is such a soft and subtle colour. I've been using this as my everyday blush for over a year now and I haven't found a blush that is as easy and perfect as this one.

Next is the L'Oreal False Lash Flutter Mascara which has been rediscovered in the past week, and is back to being one of my most favourite mascaras again. For some reason, my lashes always clump together very easily. It may be due to my technique or something, but this mascara doesn't do this AND it gives me great volume. I had been using the Lancome Hypnos mascara and I thought that was a miracle worker UNTIL I decided to pop on the good old L'Oreal. It is half the price, yet equally or (gasp) even better than the Lancome one!

Something that I have been using constantly has been the EOS lip balm in sweet mint which you can get from Selfridges. I love the feeling just after you put it on, as it makes your lips kind of tingly (which makes me feel like its doing something). I have to admit, I don't actually think it is the best moisturising lip product ever, but it does smell amazing! It is so minty and refreshing! I would buy it just for the amazing smell and taste (my boyfriend even likes it hehe). I definitely will buy another one in a different flavour.

So since it is summer now, I like to just wear a very light kind of scent, so I picked up this body spray from H&M for £1.99 which is a bargain. I find that it's not too overpowering and is perfect for everyday. It's the scent melon, and let me tell you, it is amazing! It is absolutely perfect for summer and I'm not too scared to use it up because it is as cheap as 2 chocolate bars.

Now my final favourites is the Organix Renewing Argan Oil of Morocco Shampoo and Conditioner. This smells absolutely amazing, and I love what it has been doing to my hair. My hair is so prone to split ends that I have to use oils to protect it and to make it a lot softer. I love using this product and it has definitely made my hair a lot shinier and has given it a lot more volume. I would definitely recommend checking it out.

I hope you have enjoyed this post, and have found some new products to try. Let me know if you love any of these products, and let me know any of your favourites of May!
